The minor trend is down according to the daily swing chart. This is controlling the downside momentum. The minor downtrend was reaffirmed earlier today when sellers took out Thursday’s low at 3402.50. A trade through 3462.50 will change the minor trend to up and shift momentum to the upside.

Short-Term Outlook

Based on the current price at 3378.25, the direction of the December E-mini S&P 500 Index into the close is likely to be determined by trader reaction to a pair of 50% levels at 3387.25 and 3369.50.

Bullish Scenario

A sustained move over 3387.25 will signal the presence of buyers. If this creates enough upside momentum then look for a possible rally back to 3431.75.

Bearish Scenario

A sustained move under 3369.50 will indicate the selling pressure is getting stronger. This could trigger an acceleration to the downside with the next potential downside target a support cluster at 3330.50 to 3329.00.
